is the word. there are so many questions, the biggest of which is why, why would this guy be collecting people's blood? he is 43 year old wen. he was here today at d.c. superior court. he pleaded not guilty. our camera was rolling as he came out and ran from reporters. according to charging documents around 2 p.m. yesterday, a police officer overheard people saying that they were getting paid $30 each to give blood inside of an apartment at 7p street southwest. that's public housing. not far from nats park. a woman inside the apartment told police it was her unit and she was participating as part of a work study under the direction of wenwen told officers he works for a company called boston bio source an was authorized to be drawing blood from citizens, but the d.c. department of health says he is not a licensed medical official in the district and the apartment building is not clearly
with officers. he said he just met wen this morning. i'm not sure. i got to audit committee to him, though. does he have a medical license of any kind that you know of. >> not offhand. i don't know. he seems like a very nice guy. he was very easy to talk to. we just have to wait and see what happens with respect to the outcome of the case. what did you see exactly in. >> it was a long line. i don't know why they wanted people's blood. i was weird to me, too. i didn't know what was going on, too. i thought it was a doctor or something that was doing it. i think they saying it was a regular dude, so i don't know. >> officers say that wen told them that he collected blood from about 40 people over tuesday and wednesday. he also had a log listing more than 200 other names and police recognized some of those people at
community. as far as that company that wen said that he works boston bio source, we looked into it they are a company on their website they say they provide specimens, blood, plasma and tissue, things like that for research. police were not able to contact anyone from that company as far as the charging documents state. we tried to call them. i left voice male. i have not heard back. as far as wen he is live in court next month. lauren demarco, fox5 local news. >> to prince george's county now, neighbors are questioning the safety t of a stretch of roadway where a local teen died in a crash. normal white lost control of his car tuesday and slammed into a tree. neighbors say it is not the first deadly accident. marina maracco is live in clinton tonight. >>reporter: it's not, shawn. to give you some context in the past four years there have been a tote l a of four \fate\faith l al accidents including tuesday's.

ago coming this way, a truck flipped over and i drove past and he was trying to bank to get out. i just made a u-turn and called the police. complaining about that road and for years nothing was done about it. so a 17 year old man who had a promising future had to die in order for you to say, okay, well, let's take a look at this road and see what's really going on with the road. i want to know why it took so long. >> what i think they're going to end up doing is put a speed camera right here or something about like that because the city is about money. they don't want to spend no money to fix it. they want money to go back into their pockets. they'll put a speed camera here to make people slow down and that will help, but that's not going to help in the long run. there will be more accidents. somebody is going to crash again. >> tonight we caught up with a council member for this district. that's councilman mel

shove right there. he pushed the prime minister of mont nation oh out of the way. social media went wild over on it. there you go, boom. some people criticized the president and many of you guys just had a little fun it with. in fact, take a look at some of the tweets we see on social media. >> it was ice cream day in the cafeteria. the trump shove video reminds me of every new england driver who speeds around a red light to get to their destination faster. elaine is way better at the trump fan. kim says well at least everyone knows who the primary minister of mont nation oh is. >> that's true. is this the kind of thing that led to the burr hamilton dual? if you have you '
the reference to that much technically there is a way they're supposed to line when they take the pictures because it's how you came in. mont naig oh will not officially be a member of nato until june 5. they were supposed to be in the back, but there was probably a nicer way you could get around the prime minister there. >> i didn't know that. so that's good to know. >> this was a pretty busy day, sue. tell us where we tan now and what tomorrow looks like. >> it was such a busy stay i missed the trump shove. i kind of needed that. a little l humor goes a a long way. i wanted you to see the storm system has. this is kind of the lonely cell we've been watching across frederick. it has gotten a little bit bigger. it might be dropping some moderate rain in a few spots. we're watching that one. urban a
